To be successful in the Championship, the most important thing is having the ability to keep conceding goals to a minimum and to do that you need a quality goalkeeper. Dean Henderson may only be on-loan at Bramall Lane, but he is certainly top draw and he showed that yesterday with a man of the match display against Brentford.

The Manchester United loanee has really endeared himself to the fans this season, and with performances like last night, it really isn’t hard to work out why. Despite the fact that Chris Wilder’s side had to play over 55 minutes with ten men, they recorded a well-earned 2-0 win extending their run of home clean sheets to seven consecutive games, and it wouldn’t be possible without Henderson.
At the age of just 22-years-old, there’s a bright future waiting for the Blades’ star in football, and the fans are going to be beside themselves with disappointment if they aren’t able to snap up the commanding youngster when the end of the season comes around. Until then, there are still seven Championship games left plus the possibility of the playoffs, and the Blades just want to enjoy watching Henderson in their colours while they still can.
You can see what those said fans had to say about Henderson’s marvellous performance here:
Some save that first half big man

The Blades still can’t even begin to think about Henderson leaving to back to his parent club in summer and will do anything to make him a permanent addition at Bramall Lane.
